Summary or Abstract : Grieger and Toliver (2002) posit that all colleges and universities have a responsibility to provide a campus climate that is equitable for all students and that, further, a major criterion for assessing the overall quality of an institution is its ability to provide that equitable education. They further postulate that the ever- increasing diversity within the United States challenges colleges and universities not only educate all their students equitably and effectively in the disciplines but also to prepare their students to function competently in a multicultural society.This study examines the correlation between the amount of education a mental health professional receives on the subject of multi-cultural counseling, specifically with African American women, and their color-blind racial awareness. Fifty-six members of the American Mental Health Counselors Association volunteered to complete a demographic questionnaire and the Color-blind Racial Awareness Scale (Neville, Lilly, Lee, & Browne, 2000). Many European American professionals are not aware that they have their own racial identity and privilege, which hampers the professional relationship between European American professionals and their African American women clients. Demographic variables were measured in order to test for possible moderators and to reveal mean differences. It is hypothesized that learners with higher education and clinical experience with minorities will be more aware of their color-blind racial attitudes. This study adds new knowledge to the field of human service professionals by showing the need for specialized training early on in a learner's education to address multicultural awareness, color-blind racial attitudes, White racial identity, and feelings of privilege. This correlational cross-sectional research study implements suggestions for best practices in the field of multicultural counseling. This study showed that many European Americans are not educated on their own culture. Awareness of one's culture is important but the underlying feelings they have toward minorities is equally important. The European American professional who is unaware of their racial attitudes and White privilege could not only harm African American women but the negative experience could ultimately keep the African American women from seeking further treatment elsewhere. It is our duty as professionals to make sure that this does not happen..
